Gator Boosters Surpass Go Greater Campaign Goal
GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Gator Boosters announced it has raised $491.6 million since 2014 – surpassing the organization’s initial $355 million goal – as the University of Florida celebrates the culmination of its eight-year Go Greater fundraising campaign.
The Campaign, which will continue to count gifts and contributions until Dec. 31, 2022, has supported the University Athletic Association Facilities Master Plan, Athletic Scholarship Endowment, and Program Support.
“We are so thankful for the support and generosity of the Gator Nation,” said Athletics Director Scott Stricklin. “The commitment of our passionate and invested fan base continues to position our entire program to be one of best in the nation as evidence by our 13-straight top-five finishes in national all sports rankings. From facilities, individual programs and scholarship endowments they ensure that our student-athletes have the opportunity to compete for championships and receive a degree from a top-five academic institution.”
The campaign has supported multiple projects in the Facilities Master Plan, including the development of the Condron Family Ballpark and Heavener Football Training Facility, and the renovations of the O’Connell Center, Hawkins Center at Farrior Hall, Condron Family Indoor Practice Facility, and Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
“It’s amazing to me how our Boosters stepped up during the Campaign and helped us exceed what we thought was an aggressive goal at the beginning of the Campaign, said Executive Director of Gator Boosters Phil Pharr. “We’re blessed to have a championship athletic program backed up by championship support and I couldn’t be prouder of what was accomplished.”
